    I'm joining the party. My PPD sucks all the way today. I was looking my points during work today and I thought maybe a rig or two were down.

    But when I got home that I realized. Yep 511 WUs are back. :ohwell:

    Hey all,

    I was going to wait until i got my new 4850 but it seems to be taking forever to arrive and shall have a word with the person sending it accordingly.

    At the moment I am at college and wont be back to install any instances of F@H on my computer until aroun 6pm (GMT). You guys got any advice now on what is best to do/install?

    Last time I had my FX62 and my current 3850, and i kept getting errors, saying that the CPU F@H could not start because of something, so i just got rid of it. It was only getting me 300 odd ppd anyway so wasn't really bothered.

    Now however i have a E8600 that needs to be Overclocked (a lot or just slightly i haven't decided yet, and i will have to turn off speed step) and the same 3850 as before. I used to get 2000+ppd so i am at least looking for 3000ppd... any of you got an estimate on what it may turn out to be? This will also be running 2GB's DDR3... I don't know if that will change anything or what.

    I miss not folding and feel guilty that i'm not! even if it just the odd 2000ppd, it isn't big like you guys but still... I wants to take part!

    I'm gonna start folding again with my new GTX 280 when I get my new power supply. I don't think running my 280 on a 500w with the adapters at full load for 24+ hours is a good idea lol

    Oh oh, my week+ long streak of 480s on my 9800gtx are over, 511s now, 2k ppd decrease, ug! Can't wait till I get my hr03 gtx in a month or 2 so I can fold more on the big card. I've been throwing a job or 2 in from the 280 just to keep my average from bombing so bad! Fold On!

    Hello all does anyone know how I can fold and game at the same time on my quad core without any stuttering or hitching in the video game. I've tried different affinities and priorities but could'nt get it right still. Thanks for help!

    The main game I play online -Trackmania United Forever is really designed for one core but will use a little of another core also.

    Most of the time deleting the work folder or reinstall the client will fix this issue.Can be a corrupt WU.

    Keep folding :toast:

    Back online, after almost 24H without electricity. A massive blackout that has affected thousands downtown and in the west end Toronto.

    The result: 3K points last 24H :shadedshu :cry:

    Cold temps

    My place was without heating for the last 24H (blackout). The temperatures are around -20C over here (-30C windchill).

    So when I powered-up my rigs, look how the GPUs temps were:

    Does anybody has a cooler GPU? :laugh:

    yep, if i drag my rig outside i get temps in the negative numbers, lol Its 5F out with windhcil its -10, idk what that is in celcious. All i know is my diesel block is nice and warn, all plugged in. Wish i put in straight 10w oil instead of 15w



    Im running the F@H x86 version, i believe that is the console version yes? so far no crashing or hang's, i red downloaded it and it seem to work fine. Does the x86 version use the gpu as well or just the cpu? can i have more then one instance of F@H running, ie like F@Hx86, and F@H gpu version, or 2 x86 versions running at once?

    Thanks mmaakk, I'm trying to squeeze 83K ppd out of these rigs on a daily basis(approx 581k ppd/wk). I have even joined the naked rig club and have a Biostar 790GX/9850BE folding SMP with no clothes on:eek:


    Lol, i'm from Florida, so i always get a giggle out of backyard benchruns in sub-zero temps(i'm jealous). I will say it's cold down here right now(40 outside/55 inside with fan in window).
